    Really hard to know for sure as receiving compliments for me is rare, but over the years since wearing fragrances, probably Balafre or Gengis Khan.

    It's not surprising that two of the three most complimented on me are the "generic designers" that often get the cold shoulder here on BN...
    Bleu de Chanel (always get a compliment)
    Acqua di Gio (of course)

    ...and the third most complimented (and I think surprising) is...Heeley Cardinal

    Of course I own and love all three (and about a hundred more)!

    I have received more compliments on Aventus than anything. I haven't worn any in a while. I think I'll correct that next week.

    Most anything Creed, Vince Camuto, Fahrenheit, etc. I think as long as it smells good in general, a compliment comes from their ability to smell it and the guts to say something.

    It's hard for me to say as I get compliments most days, though notably enthusiastic comments have come from Mona di Orio's Vanille, Tuscan Leather and Tobacco Vanille (I wear anything, anytime).
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Chypre Palatin
    2) APOM Pour Homme
    3) Interlude Man
    4) One Man Show Gold Edition
    5) Mamluk
    6) Kouros (Vintage)
    7) Tobacco Vanille
    8) 34 Boulevard Saint Germain
    9) More than Words
    10) Le Male (Vintage)

    Very rarely get unsolicited compliments... If you include people trying to get closer to me to cop a sniff, then Aventus is the one.

    I'm going to have to agree with this. After Curve, I'd probably say Gucci Pour Homme II. I'm tempted to say Interlude Man, but it's more of a nighttime scent, and I suspect that part of the reason it gets so many compliments is because it's so loud.
    In my swap list: Gucci Pour Homme (2003) BNIB.
    I'm looking for Reflection Man or Andy Warhol (silver bottle w/Andy's face)

    GPHII is my most complimented fragrance, period. Which is surprising because I've only owned it less than 6 months.

    Well, I'm one of those people who actually get a lot of compliments, even from strangers now and then but I THINK, if I can remeber correctly, my MOST complimented would probably be, in no particular order -
    Armani Code (probably the most)
    Michael Jordan Legend
    Acqua di Gio
    and.....................in the heat of summer....Adidas Pure Game (yep good old $9.99 Adidas Pure Game)
    Curve and Curve Crush get a few
    Halston Z-14 gets a few when I add a little Patchouli oil to it (especially older ladies 45 and up)
    The Dreamer gets a few
    Dirty English gets a few especially when I add some AXE Music as a base layer
    The current G/F's faves are Adidas Moves (yep Adidas again) - Obsession (when worn conservatively), and Endymion and Eau Savage (my 2 favorites too which is nice)

    So jealous of your X100S. Do you happen to have any sample pics from it? Ive been thinking of trading in my D7000.

    Most complemented are probably MI, DHS, Paco XS and Orig Vetiver.

    As it stands now, Lacoste 12.12 whatever Blanc (white), I have a .5 oz bottle that I got for 5 bucks, just for fun. It's actually a very nice fairly long lasting citrus fragrance with a sweet ruby red grapefruit top note. Not to mention, this stuff gets me compliments up the ass. I mean everytime I wear it, it gets compliments, people ask what I'm wearing, and say they've never smelled anything like it. I disagree with that one though, it's definitley not all that unique, Clinique Happy comes to mind a little bit. My mom usually doesn't care for most fragrances I have. The other day I was wearing Gucci pH II and Lacoste Blanc, one on each hand, I asked her which she preferred, and she said not only could she smell the Blanc more, she could barely smell the Gucci. She also said how she usually dislikes most of my fragrances, but really loved this one. It may be a real winner.. I may get a full bottle soon.

    Fahrenheit (1988)

    Without a doubt it's Fishbone Man.
    It's a simple structured grapefruit and cardamom fragrance that has excellent projection.
    It is not widely known outside Germany, where it was manufactured, but it has attained a cult status of sorts there. Also, a few basenotes members rave about it, including griff.
    ps. this fragrance was formerly released under the name Marrakesh Tales, (Maurer+Wirz) where you can see reviews.

    Aventus - I usually get several compliments every time I wear this to the office.
    Jub XXV - gets a lot of notices. Most ask "what is that incense smell?" I thought it was a bad thing at first, but they like it
    Blue de Chanel - I can't stand this fragrance at all. It was blind buy, so I wear it, but it gets me the most compliments.
    By Kilian Straight to Heaven - I got out of my car one day and just walking to my office, I got 4 compliments.

    Forgot to add Gucci Guilty and Pure Havane. These get several.
